Tassat, a global provider of financial technologies and products for traditional and digital asset markets, has partnered with AlgoTrader to provide institutional clients with its automated, quantitative trading software including direct access to Tassat’s cryptocurrency derivatives to be offered soon on a regulated exchange.
Tassat LLC is preparing to launch its derivatives products, the first of which will be a physically-deliverable, margined Bitcoin swaps available for institutional investors, brokers and other eligible contract participants. Through this partnership, institutional clients of AlgoTrader will be able to access and incorporate these instruments into their quantitative trading strategies with access to liquidity and the regulatory oversight that institutions require.

AlgoTrader clients will be able to send orders directly to Tassat’s US-based exchange affiliate, while Tassat will gain access to a larger pool of hedge funds and institutions. Together, the partners will strive to build a global institutional-grade cryptocurrency trading ecosystem for institutional and qualified investors.
